Based in Flathead Lakes, Mont., StanCraft Boats is now in its third generation as a family-owned custom wood boatbuilder. Using mostly African mahogany, this versatile yard has produced everything from sleek sport boats to sturdy day cruisers. A custom yard in every sense of the word, StanCraft has no base hull form or model lines. Despite its ability to create virtually any style, some of its boats tend to be favorites with their customers, such as the Deluxe Sport, which the company has built in lengths of 25 to 34 feet and equipped with single or twin engines. Recently, StanCraft has built a 30-footer that packs a punch. Equipped with a MerCruiser 8.2L HO 430 hp engine and Bravo III X drive, it reaches 40 knots and features enough seating for 10 passengers. Amenities include a V-shaped berth, a full head, a spacious sun pad and dual swim steps for easy water access. It’s the custom fittings that tend to turn these boats into family heirlooms. The yard uses bronze chrome-plated brackets and hardware as well as custom gauges to personalize each boat.
